Bartlett student unveils £22k kinetic structure

  • Comment

Bartlett architecture student Charlie Redman has submitted this £22,000 scheme for the 2016 AJ Small Projects Award


The moving shelter was completed in the summer as part of a larger scheme at the King’s Cross garden site.

Charlie Redman’s ‘welcoming shelter’ is one of seven structures built from reclaimed materials for educational charity Global Generation.

The shelter was designed to be moveable so the garden can be relocated to different spaces around Argent’s development site as construction of the huge masterplan progresses.

The scheme provides flexible outdoor seating and dining space which opens and closes depending on the weather.
